The club began in the mid 1980's, when Ruth Lumbers started a private bridge club. This met each week at the Mollymook Bowling Club. During those years many of our members also played at Nowra and Batemans Bay and Ruth was a well-respected player at all three clubs. Ruth was killed in a car crash in 1989 and her daughter offered the club's equipment to Ron Irons. Ron did not want to run a private club so, following a meeting on 23rd Jan 1990, the Mollymook Bridge Club was established and affiliated with the ABF.
 
Each year, we hold the "Ruth Lumbers Memorial Trophy" event between Mollymook, Batemans Bay and Nowra clubs in honour of her memory.
 
We started playing two sessions each week, one at the Bowling Club and one at the Sarah Claydon Village. After Sarah Claydon asked us to move, we played at the Milton CWA hall and then at Bannisters Lodge.
 
As we started playing more sessions each week, it became obvious that we needed our own premises and over a six year period, we battled with State, Local and Federal governments seeking a grant for land on which to build a club house.
 
Eventually we decided to do it on our own. We bought the land on 4th Apr 1997 and the club house was officially opened on 12th Dec that year. We are normally set up for 13 tables, although 16 would fit comfortably. In theory 21 tables could fit, but it would be a bit crowded.
